CORAL SPRINGS, FL – As Covid-19 vaccination speeds up across the region, Broward Health said Friday that new appointments are being accepted at its vaccination site at Inter Miami CF Stadium in Fort Lauderdale.

From check-in to completing observation, the average wait time for a shot is about 45 minutes, the hospital system said in a news release.

“We are able to deliver these vaccines safely and efficiently, with virtually no wait times,” said Aldo Calvo, D.O., medical director of ambulatory services at Broward Health, in the release.

The stadium site is open Monday through Friday and averages 1,250 pre-registered patients a day, the release said.

Anyone 16 years of age or older is eligible to receive the vaccine. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, receiving chemotherapy or radiation therapy, you must bring a note from your treating physician, the release said.

To schedule an appointment, visit BrowardHealth.org. Go to the top of the page and click on “To submit a request click here” to complete and submit the vaccination request form.

Broward Health schedulers will then call and book first and second appointments.
